I have a fishtail dress, and i’ve got a really long viel (the lenth of my train) I suppose it depends what you like though really? What styles do you like/have you tried?

Any veil would look beautiful but my opinion is that either fingertip lace trimmed veils or cathedral length veils look best with mermaids.

I think a cathedral length plain tulle would be great.

I would go with one that ends around the area where the flare begins. Butt-length-ish.


Or a french net tiny one that only goes over your nose

I’d personally go with fingertip – they come in different cuts, so look around! Good luck!

I think either a raw-edged fingertip veil, or a raw-edged plain tulle cathedral veil. You could do a small hair jewel where you fasten the veil to your hair.

Especially since outdoors you will have dramatic “wind” shots with the veil!

I wore a fingertip veil with my mermaid gone and thought it was the best choice. Since your wedding is outside I would also not go any longer, yes you could have dramatic shots, but it will more likely get in the way or hang awkwardly down…btw love that dress!!!!

Great veil and goes perfectly with the dress, because it is so simple and elegant (and not too mucg bling;)). I also ordered the veil on etsy-it is just so much cheaper and veils kinda all look the same anyway. However, I only wore mine for the ceremony, but not for the recpetion and majority of the pictures.
